Must I hire a lawyer to write me a waiver or will a general waiver do? 2 Answers as of November 25, 2010

I am starting a small summer program. It really should not be dangerous to the kids participating, but it will be physical and I wanted to have their parents sign a waiver just in case. I have found a few general waivers online that seem like they would work fine, but I am wondering, should I hire a lawyer to write a waiver for me? Is that really necessary to limit my liability?

You should have a waiver to protect yourself. You can prepare the waiver and have an attorney review it.
